Ponderosa started up way back in in 1965, and then it merged with the Bonanza chain of steakhouses in 1997. That was a cute move, since the Bonanza Steakhouse chain was started by Dan Blocker, who played Eric “Hoss” Cartwright on Bonanza the TV show. If you’re old enough to remember the TV show, it took place at Ponderosa Ranch! 

Below are the latest Ponderosa Buffet prices.
